    Good morning, and welcome to another edition of Sportsday Live.

    TENNIS

    There is, of course, only one place to start. Cast your eyes to New York and survey the champion: Andy Murray ends Britain's 76-year wait for a male Grand Slam singles winner with victory over Novak Djokovic in an epic US Open final.

    It was an epic, five-set encounter, in the words of Murray's coach Ivan Lendl "a war".

    In defeating reigning champion Djokovic 7-6 (12-10) 7-5 2-6 3-6 6-2 in four hours 54 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium, Murray, 25, finally emulated Fred Perry's 1936 achievement. He showed grit, flair and, crucially, the ability to emerge victorious. What a night.

    TENNIS

    "When I realised I had won I was very shocked, relieved and emotional for a few minutes afterwards," Andy Murray told the BBC following his US Open victory.

    "It means the world to me. It's what I've been working towards for definitely the last 10 years of my life.

    "Following the disappointment of the Wimbledon final a few months ago, to come back in the next Grand Slam... is unbelievable."

    "And there you were thinking this sporting summer had given us everything it could," says BBC Sport's chief sports writer Tom Fordyce.

    "Andy Murray's nerve-mangling, history-making US Open triumph over Novak Djokovic was many things: one of the great finals of the modern era, a late-night thriller from the city that never sleeps, a breath-taking demonstration of physical strength and mental fortitude.

    "This fairytale of New York was also the perfect bookend to a few months that British sport can scarcely believe and will never forget."

    "It was a privilege [to be at the match]. I love tennis, I love watching tennis and to be involved tonight was a really special moment.

    BBC Sport's Andrew Castle on Andy Murray's character following his US Open triumph: "What we are finally seeing is a man rather than a boy. So many have come and gone over the years, so many of us have had a crack at it and have done their best. But this scrawny boy who came along in 2004-05 was always talented.

    "To see him really achieve something, maximise his potential and deal with the disappointments that he has suffered over the last few years when people have questioned him, to see him come through, was exhilarating to watch."

    "He's got his name on that trophy three times and made the final eight times in a row. It really helps having him around."

    Wales's run of defeats under the new manager continued in their 2-0 Group A opening defeat by Belgium on Friday.

    "It does weigh on your mind, I'm not going to lie to you," said Coleman.

    "But we're going to score and we're going to win - sooner or later that's going to happen. And when we do it, we can march on and plough forward."

    "I didn't come here to have a good time - I came here to help Andy win. He did, so it's job done."

    He continued: "Andy has been maturing very nicely as a player, as a competitor, as a person. As you mature you become more comfortable in these situations.

    "Of course, it's very important to be in more of these situations and the more of them you are in the more comfortable you feel."

    "Chris Woakes set the tone by flattening Sam Kelsall's middle stump in the first over, and throughout there was some lively bowling, some breezy strokeplay and watchable - if a little one-sided - cricket.

    BBC Radio Kent's Matt Cole in CardiffCRICKET

    "The wicket looks decent enough, the ball's flying through at a reasonable pace, Kent probably hoped there would be one or two horrors in it as they desperately need a result. Stewart Walters is the pick of the batsmen so far, looking assured from ball one.

    "Glamorgan's session, they've batted so solidly you might be forgiven for thinking they'd won the toss. Only spinner James Tredwell has managed to staunch the flow of runs and could hold the key to any further breakthroughs for the team hoping for promotion."

    Glamorgan are 133-2.
